Migration has made European societies more ethnically diverse over the last decades. Understanding societal developments among the European population therefore requires better insight into the life courses and family dynamics of migrants. In this project, we study the causes and consequences of life course decisions of migrants and their families. This is linked to changes in the population of the countries of origin and settlement. We investigate these topics by using various international datasets that allow for an innovative methodological analysis of migrants and their families.
The project is funded by an ERC Starting Grant (de Valk). More information on the project can be found at https://www.familifeproject.com/.
